Donny Deutsch: ‘Our Democracy Is Under Siege’

‘I hope one of [Democratic presidential candidates] stands up and understands what the American people want to hear tonight, and they want to hear an assault on Donald Trump’

EXCERPT:

DEUTSCH: "Joe, I’m glad you moved to the Democrats. As far as Trump destroying everything that came before him, I’ve worked with CEOs and the weakest, the tiniest CEOs are the ones that come aboard and have to break everything or dis-acknowledge anything before them because their sense of self is so small and so tiny. I’ve worked with those CEOs. As far as the Democrats, and I’m sure we’ll talk a lot about the debates, I really hope tonight one, if not all of them, shows leadership and understand the game is not single-payer health insurance. The game is, we need to rid ourselves of this ogre and go at him strong. And the very speech that you gave, throughout the night I would like to hear Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren. That’s what a leader would do. Nothing else matters right now. Our democracy is under siege. I have not seen it in the first two debates. I’ve seen them go after Barack Obama, I’ve seen them go after each other, I've seen them go after busing. I hope one of them stands up and understands what the American people want to hear tonight, and they want to hear an assault on Donald Trump."
